The premiere of the first season of the Israeli TV series Shababniki took place at the Amediateka online cinema. Especially for this event, the famous Russian poster artist and graphic designer Igor Gurovich presented an exclusive poster.
The inspiration for him was the work of contemporary Spanish artist Isidro Ferrera, who loves to experiment with surrealism in his work, is attentive to textures, especially wood and paper. Igor Gurovich knows him personally. In his style and approach, the “Shababnik” poster is close to the American film poster, associated with the hero and the graphic context that surrounds him.
